Simon Cowell confirms Louis Walsh won’t be returning to The X Factor

Simon Cowell has confirmed that Louis Walsh has been let go from The X Factor after 11 years. The Syco boss made the announcement on his Twitter account in the early hours of the morning, verifying tabloid rumours from yesterday afternoon.

Simon's sweet tweet read: "Louis Walsh is one of the good guys. We will always be friends. The door remains open and who knows what's next?"

While the show's production team are keeping tight-lipped about the panel, Simon looks set to reinvent the show entirely for series 12. Caroline Flack and Olly Murs will co-host the talent competition and Simon's expected to shake up the show's audition rounds, too.
